The opportunity is definitely here to be able to take the Dolphins, and we think that they are going to have a decent shot of pulling off the upset when push comes to shove. The matchup in this one is relatively favorable from the standpoint of the Miami defense. Sure, stopping QB Drew Brees and the gang is never all that easy, but the Fins know that they have the pass rush to disrupt drives. The Saints throw the ball on almost two thirds of their plays, and they tend to get Brees sacked quite a bit. The veteran has already been dropped 10 times this year, and he also has nine scrambles to boot. That’s 19 pressures that are on the stat sheet and countless others that aren’t, and that has to have this Miami defensive line salivating after it has already racked up nine sacks on the season. DE Cameron Wake probably won’t play in this game, but we know that DE Dion Jordan, the man that the team traded up in the first round of the NFL Draft to get, is a suitable replacement when it comes to rushing the passer.
Aside from that, it’s just quite easy to trust this Miami team. The club is 21-10-1 ATS in its last 32 road games, and it is most certainly a team that can put some points on the board as well. This is a very similar looking game to the one that the Dolphins played in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts, a game that was won in relatively shocking fashion. Perhaps Miami doesn’t ultimately win this game. Even if that happens though, we still have nearly a full touchdown on our side. We have a feeling that this is one of these games that comes down to the dying plays.
Dolphins @ Saints Pick: Miami Dolphins +6.5
